well we have all heard on the news that Gas prices are falling......

I have an account for filling up the old "GASIT" system with Countrywide Farmers with only 5% VAT as its for "domestic use" ( cooking and heating! ) and boy was i surprised and pleased to get this email yesterday.

Dear Mr ,

I am delighted to announce that your Autogas price will be reduced to 52.4ppl plus VAT, effective from 1st January 2015.
A reduction in the cost of wholesale LPG and improved stability in the market means that we can pass on this benefit to our customers.

so thats 55.02 pence per Litre. :clap2: . ... dont see Calor doing anything close any time soon :frowny:

Was a newbie, now a Middie.
Thats very good. I'm paying 59p at the moment at my local garage, reduced from 74p two months ago, and I thought that was OK. (LPG powered car).

there are only a couple of places local that you can get LPG "at all" certainly no supermarkets.

Better fill before you visit tourist ripoff scarborough.....if you have nowhere better to go, but that will be difficult.

Still 67.9p...has been for the last 3 years.

No real competition is the problem.

Crikey :eek: That has reminded me that when I flew hot air balloons we use to buy our gas at 11 pence per litre (mid 90's). Made you, we could get through 600 to 700 litres in one weekend :eek:

Yes I know but this is why http://golpg.co.uk/station/company/5 say Paisley cos absolutely no one knows where Linwood is but you :LOL:
My local Asda is Owlcotes, no one would have a clue, if I said Pudsey they might have heard of Pudsey bear but most will know Leeds :p
Not gonna bother to argue with you, if you wish to drive to Paisley for Gas please feel free to do so. Just expect a disappointment when you get there and find no Asda :p:p:p:p:p

And now its down to 49.9ppl.

Havent used countrywide for quite some time now (wrong side of country) but still have an active account.
i found them not a lot cheaper than anywhere else.

It is amazing that we pay 20, 30, 40, 50+ thousand pounds for a van and then search out gas at 1p cheaper than the next garage and will drive miles to get it; why do I do this?
